Nursing methods have evolved over times and has reached unimaginable bounds. However traditionally four nursing models have been described based on which the current nursing systems have been adopted. They are i) Team nursing ii) Functional Nursing both of which are task oriented and iii) Primary nursing and iv) Total patient care which are patient oriented.
Primary nursing is one where a single nurse or two to three nurses round a clock are assigned a patient from admission till recovery. The concept involves developing a one-to-one nurse-family relationship, empowering nurses to make care plan, monitor and follow up patients assigned to them, and patient assignment based on proficiency level of the nurse.
